      **************************************

      From the Girard (KS) Press, June 11, 1914-- Dennis Swart, one of the best known farmers of the western part of Missouri, died this morning of heart failure at his home near Swart, Missouri. Mr. Swart, although 76 years old at the time of his death, had always been in good health, and his sudden demise comes as a great shock to the members of his family and the many friends who live in Kansas and Missouri. Mr. Swart had lived in Missouri all his life. He founded the little village which was named after him and he owned practically all of the farms surrounding. He almost owned a little country of his own, and that he died quite wealthy, there is no doubt. On his land, oil had been struck in small quantities, which Mr. Swart planned to develop more fully. The deceased formerly lived in this city for a short time and made many friends. He is survived by several children, some of whom live near the old home place and one, Mr. George Swart, lives in this city.
